Artist Lorraine Roy explores the spiritual qualities of trees, particularly in her burning bush series. About 15 years ago I planted this American beech in a clearing beside our cottage. Receiving limited sunlight it has not grown beyond a sapling, yet its life shines brightly amid a shadowy cloister of Eastern hemlocks. The species’ habit of holding onto its leaves through winter gives it a special ghostly quality. This is my own living burning bush.

It’s amazing how it seems as if there’s light shining on that beech, even though it appears to be an overcast day. Excellent photo.
The tree is luminous that way!
